A very comfortable apartment with wonderful views from the lounge over the estuary in a quiet location. The standard of all the equipment and utensils were of the highest standard and a bonus to have two bathrooms. The location was perfect for exploring the southern Lake District.

Very comfortable, quiet and stylish apartment, off the beaten track but very well positioned for southern Lakes and Cartmel peninsula. Hosts gave good information about the apartment and about local walks and pubs. It was good to be able to retreat to somewhere so nice.

This was was a fabulous apartment in a great location for getting out and about in the Lake District. We could not have asked for more so would highly recommend this to all.

Summer Hill House is close to Windermere and Coniston but a very quiet location. We liked the views into the large garden and enjoyed the comfort of having two (modern) bathrooms that have enough space for the toiletries. The apartment is very well equipped and tastefully furnished. We really felt at home. As the Lake District is of such an outstanRead moreding beauty we will pay Summer Hill House a second visit for sure. Hide

Beautiful apartment. Very clean. Everything you need is provided. Lovely views out of the lounge window across the lawns, then trees and the estuary. We even spotted a deer crossing the drive coming home one evening. Nice places to eat a short drive away, but you do need a car to get about, as the local pub has recently closed. Great base for visitRead moreing the various attractions of the Lake District. Hide

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
